Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Amateur Scene -

The power in women’s ama­teur golf has firmly shifted south across the Jukskei River with Gaut­eng tak­ing over from Gaut­eng North as the dom­i­nant prov­ince. They won the 55th Pick n Pay In­ter­provin­cial at Cen­tu­rion CC to add to the 72-hole Teams Cham­pi­onship they won in May. Gaut­eng last won the IPT in 2006 at Ger­mis­ton GC (they won four straight from 2003-2006) be­fore Gaut­eng North won seven con­sec­u­tive ti­tles be­tween 2007 and 2013.

Gaut­eng topped the stroke­play qual­i­fy­ing rounds for the Jean Tin­dall Tro­phy at the be­gin­ning of the week, by 13 shots from Gaut­eng North and Gaut­eng B. Gaut­eng North B took fourth place to con­test the A1 sec­tion. Danielle du Toit (Gaut­eng North) and Cait­lyn McNab (Ekurhu­leni) took in­di­vid­ual hon­ours on 142.

Gaut­eng eclipsed Gaut­eng North B 8½-½ the first day, and then thrashed the home union’s A team 8-1 – in both games win­ning all six sin­gles – be­fore cruis­ing past Gaut­eng B 6½-2½. Natasha Carls­son and Woo-Ju Son both won the max­i­mum six points for the Li­ons, while Eleonora Gal­letti got 5½, Ka­jal Mistry 4½, Ivanna Samu 4 and Kaleigh Telfer 3½. Boland and Border had re­peat suc­cesses from a year ago. Boland won three matches to win Sec­tion A2, while Border claimed Sec­tion B1. Southern Cape were un­beaten to win Sec­tion B2.
